Things I Still Do From Childhood As An Adult

I Still Sleep With My Stuffed Animal And Do These Other 9 Things From My Childhood, Do You?

Did we really grow up?


Admit it, we all still have those habits that we did as a kid, we do now as adults. Though it may seem weird at first, all the memories come back to you associated with it. And it's just fun, like, who doesn't want to feel like a kid again? Being an adult kind of sucks.

So why would we stop doing these things as we were little? I mean, what do we really have to lose?

1. Sleep with a stuffed animal or two still.

How could you sleep at night without them?! (Build-A-Bear was also the shit).

2. Keep old projects you made in art class.

The next Picasso.

3. Watch your old favorite shows like SpongeBob, Hey Arnold!, and Rugrats just to name a few.

(Just saying Nicktoons and Nick@Nite has them on the daily.)

4. Playing old CD-ROM games like Mall Tycoon, Zoo Tycoon, The Sims…

You could play these all day. (Wanna Woohoo?)

5. You still have your first iPod (iPod shuffle or iPod touch, both first gen).


6. You still get excited when you play your favorite board game like Candy Land, Sorry!, and Monopoly.

That damn Peppermint Forest...

7. You still watch animated movies from your childhood as an adult. (Or go see the sequels in the theaters fourteen years later…Incredibles 2)


8. Gets kids meals while an adult at fast food restaurants.

Will never be too old for these.

9. If there was an option between water and Capri Sun, you’d take the Capri Sun.

The thirst is real.

10. Still using that email you made in 6th grade (mine is dancin36vball)

And Gmail was a big deal too.

I mean, did we really grow up? I don't think so.

10 Jonas Brother Songs That Complete The Perfect 2008 Nostalgia Playlist

My prepubescent 12-year-old self is still fangirling.


2019 is the year of the comebacks, with the most infamous one being the Jonas Brothers. My prepubescent 12-year-old self is still fangirling. I never thought the day would come where we would get another bop from the jo bros. In honor of this glorious event, I am counting down their best songs to date.

10. "When You Look Me In The Eyes"

This song is on this list only for my mother's sake. She almost fist fought someone during the burning up a tour and went on a rant because they were not going to play this. (They did for the encore)

9. "Year 3000"

This makes the list as number 9 because it was not only the first song that made me fall in love with them, but it also made me want to buy a Kelly Clarkson album.

8. "Play My Music"

Now granted, this was on the camp rock album it still is one of the best songs in their career. Every time they would play this on the Disney channel I would literally jump out of my seat to dance and pretend I was at their concert.

7. "Pom Poms"

The weak attempt at their first comeback due to creative differences gave us this gem. I will always play this at my cousin's soccer game due to the upbeat vibe and positivity it gives.

6. "Hold On"

This brought me to tears at the tender age of 9, with my imaginary boyfriend.

5. "We Got The Party" ft. Hannah Montana

Sweet Mama, this song is great for a summer day.

4. "Sucker"

This second attempt at a comeback was so much better than the first. This song is definitely the song of the summer.

3. "Lovebug"

This really put me in my bag and still does in 2019.

2. "S.O.S"

Kevin's dance to this made everything.

1. "Burning Up"

This was the first rap I memorized and is the most iconic song of 2008.
